I've just finished reading his blog.

What an amazing person. His family, Friends and IHD were privileged to have known him, even if it was just for a short time.

RIP Leafsunbear.

Thanks for letting us know. Prayers for his family - and for all of us. :grouphug;

It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.

 :'( :'( :'( :'( Leafsunbear is the 4th friend I have lost this week due to this ESRD and it really starting to get to me.  May your family find comfort from your sweet spirit and I will be thinking of all of them in this most sad time.   :grouphug;

Thank you Black for bringing this to our attention...

Rest In Peace LeafSunBear, you will be missed by many  :angel;

Glad I could help.  I felt he was such an important member of the dialysis community everyone should be aware of the great loss.  His patience in replying to and posting information for the newbies on several forums was so very kind.  We sometimes forget how scared we were in the beginning and he was so empathetic.  I'm sure he brought comfort and peace to many, and thanks to places like this he will continue to do so for a long time.  Death has stolen another intelligent and kind voice of experience but we were lucky to have him for a while.  He was an extraordinary person and will be greatly missed by many.
